Peugeot 407

The Peugeot exhibition stand at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show covers a floor space of almost 3000 square metres and will give visitors the chance to reflect on a glorious past, wonder at the present and take a glimpse of the future of Peugeot.

The show highlights include :

407 Coupé

Star of the show on the Peugeot stand will be the new Peugeot 407 Coupé which has its world première at Frankfurt. It has been designed as a genuine four seater grand tourer and is the latest in a long line of elegant Peugeot coupés. The new 407 Coupé, available in the UK in January 2006, will top the 407 range which has already seen worldwide sales of over 300,000 vehicles in little over a year.

Available at launch with three choices of engine:

  • 2.2-litre 160bhp 16-valve petrol
  • 2.7-litre 205bhp V6 24-valve HDi Diesel with Particulate Emission Filter
  • 3.0-litre 211bhp V6 24-valve petrol

All models are equipped with six speed gearboxes - manual or automatic dependent on model. Revised double wishbone front suspension and integral multi-arm rear suspension combined with exceptional torsional body rigidity produce a great driving experience.

Like all 407s the Coupé has as standard a comprehensive active safety specification including: ABS, ESP, EBFD, ASR, seven airbags and active front head restraints.
